Latvia’s public broadcaster LTV has announced recently that the country’s representative in Eurovision 2020 will be emerged through the national final, Supernova, which will take place for the sixth consecutive year. The Supernova 2020 final will be held in Riga on February 8.
Interested creators must submit their proposals in order to compete for the Latvian representation in Rotterdam until the 20th of November.
Submission are being applied electronically, via the relevant website and this year unlike previous years, it is possible to involve foreign creators and interpreters as long as there is a Latvian in the group.
It is not yet known whether the semi-finals will be held or if there will be only one final night, as, according to Supernova producer Ilze Jansone, some details have not been set yet.
We did not know Supernova’s fate for a long time and by the end of August the interest in the competition and the application process was higher than in the previous five years, so we expect more qualitative entries. At the moment, we still have a lot to decide on the selection process, but we are confident that the final of the competition will be live on February 8th.
